US Marines sent to explore Ancient Pyramids discovered in Antarctica !!!

US Marines sent to explore Ancient Pyramids discovered in Antarctica !!! April 2017
April 2017 - Antarctica, Canadian area. Leaked videos shows US Marines deplyed in Antarctica to explore ancient pyramids discovered by US and european researchers in 2012.
Watch the VIDEO HERE !
Three ancient pyramids have been discovered in the Antarctic in 2014  by a team of American and European scientists.
The only reliable information provided by the scientists was that they were planning an expedition to the pyramids to research them more thoroughly and determine for sure whether the structures were artificial or natural. No details about the time frame of the expedition were offered. But today we believe that US authorities lost contact with the expedition. That would explain the use of military power in Antarctica...
What is hiding in the ancient pyramids of Antarctica ? Who built them ? What is their secret ?
Can it be possible that Antarctica was once warm enough in the recent past to actually have had an ancient civilization living there? And even more perplexing is the question of if an advanced culture did develop there, are there any structures still remaining that are buried underneath the ice ?
The shocking discovery of ancient man-made pyramids under the thick ice and snow of Antarctica would change our perception of human history forever.
Scholars and Egyptologists have long suspected that the Sphynx is far older than first estimated, possibly over 10,000 years old.Scientists discovered that evidence of water erosion on the ancient statue, still the world’s largest, tells a story of climate change from rainy hot jungle to desert in afew thousand short years.
If the climate in Egypt changed this quickly, is it not equally possible that the Antarctic climate could have also changed drastically in the same time?Legends speak of pyramids in the Antarctica, of the lost city of Atlantis being covered not just under water, but encased in ice.

New Antarctica Pyramid location of spaceship station

From a pyramid created by a lost civilisation to a staircase built by aliens, Antarctica has been a hotspot for sightings by UFO hunters in recent months.
Now, in their latest bizarre claim, alien enthusiasts claim they have spotted ET's ship hidden in a cave in the South Pole. 
Their 'discovery', made from what they claim are Google Earth satellite images, was described as 'final proof of secret technology' on Antarctica.

From a pyramid created by a lost civilisation to a staircase built by aliens, Antarctica has been a hotspot for sightings by UFO hunters. Now, in their latest bizarre claim, alien enthusiasts claim they have spotted ET's ship hidden in a cave in the South Pole
The claim has been made by a YouTube channel called Secure Team based in Cleveland, Ohio. 
They zoomed in on a mountainous region of the South Pole and found what they believe to to be a disc in a cave. 
'This is a bombshell discovery and one of the most obvious unnatural and anomalous structures we have found at the South Pole,' Secure Team said. 
This follows another claim earlier this month that there is a giant staircase in Antarctica.

The 'discovery', made from what they claim are Google Earth satellite images, was described as 'final proof of secret technology' on Antarctica.

An image has surfaced which is alleged  to be a satellite image of the Antarctic, and believers in extra-terrestrial life claim it could prove aliens are visiting Earth.
The picture was posted on a UFO and conspiracy theory forum. 
The image was posted online by an anonymous member on the forum Godlike Productions, along with a message.
'This morning, in the work van, we were talking about conspiracies, and one of them were about so many big names going to Antarctica out of the blue,' the message read.
'I was bored so I pulled out Google Earth for a while, just exploring, when I came across something that looked like a giant staircase.
'Anyone have an idea what it is? Just a glitch with satellite cameras? Or something more?' 
Others offered more logical explanations, like an anomaly with the lens or snow dunes. 
The latest in a series of bizarre claims by conspiracy theorists says there is a giant staircase in Antarctica. An image has surfaced which is alleged to be a satellite image of the Antarctic, and believers in extra-terrestrial life claim it could prove aliens are visiting Earth
Some doubted the origin of the image, which the poster claimed was from Google Earth, because the user did not provide co-ordinates
A YouTube channel called SecureTeam10 found the co-ordinates of the image (pictured)
Another image of a 'dome' in Antarctica sparked claims there was once a civilisation living in the frozen continent.
The picture, which was said to be from Google Earth, showed an oval-shaped structure that is believed be 400 foot (121 metres) across.
Some claimed the structure is 'evidence' that a human civilisation once lived in the South Pole, while others said it may be a natural phenomenon.

'What if, in the distant past, when Earth –and Antarctica— was much different then today, an ancient civilization developed there, creating fascinating structures, monuments and temples there?' a post on Ancient Code says.
The post says scientists initially thought the discovery could be a sastrugi – a natural phenomenon formed by years of battering by strong, freezing winds and heavy snowfalll.

Another strange theory surfaced last year, claiming that there is a mysterious pyramid in the Antarctic had emerged.
Conspiracy theorists have posted a video on YouTube, in which they claim that US Secretary of State, John Kerry, visited Antarctica last week to visit an 'alien base' within the pyramid.
The video suggests that the images have been taken from Google Earth, but it is unclear whether they have been edited.
The video was posted by Third Phase of the Moon, a YouTube channel that regularly posts conspiracy theories on aliens.
It showed a pyramid-like structure in the snow, with a Google Earth-type label and pin.

The label reads 'Antartica Pyramid' – a misspelling of Antarctica, which suggests that image might have been doctored.
Responses to the video were varied, with some users backing-up the claims, such as James Jason, who commented: 'Excellent report Third Phase, I also believe things are about to get very dramatic, and that is for everyone on our planet.'
But others dismissed it, such as Gordon Anderson, who said: 'I have spent a LOT of time on snow covered mountains- skiing down, and this looks natural to me - not man made anyway!'

Others joked John Kerry was there for other reasons, such as Daniel Schultz, who commented: '#27 on his bucket list, fly to Antarctica and make 'snow angels' where no man has gone before.'
It is unclear what the structure could be, but it looks similar to a nunatak – a natural mountain peak that juts up above glaciers.
Nigel Watson, author of the UFO Investigations Manual, told MailOnline: 'Pictures of the pyramid structures are either photoshopped, cropped pictures to make the mountains look more like pyramids or simply pictures of natural formations called nunataks. 
'They are mountainous formations created by shifting glaciers and erosion, not by laser zapping aliens.' 
Pyramids are often an area of interest for conspiracy theorists.

In October last year, a video posted on YouTube claimed there was a crystal pyramid beneath the Bermuda Triangle, which was to blame for the disappearance of several planes and ships in the area.
Mr Watson added: 'There is always a mystique about pyramid structures.
'Back in the 1970s there were many claims that such objects could preserve food, generate health benefits and even keep razors sharp.'

Scientists Claim To Have Found 234 Alien Civilizations

Aliens are like buses, you spend ages waiting for one and then 234 come along at once. Or at least, that’s what two astronomers from the Laval University in Quebec are suggesting. Ermanno Borra and his graduate student Eric Trottier have analyzed over 2.5 million stars and galaxies for pulses of light emitted at regular intervals and discovered it in 234 stars similar in size to our Sun. The team believes that alien civilizations are behind those signals. The researchers looked at the Fourier Transform (FT) of the light spectrum. The FT is a mathematical tool that allows us to work out where the components of a signal come from. If the light is a milkshake, by using the FT you get the recipe. The FT analysis has found periodic modulated components which, according to the scientists, are caused by the super quick light pulses (less than a trillionth of a second) generated by Extraterrestrial Intelligence (ETI). In the paper, available from the Publications of the Astronomical Society of the Pacific, they discard every other explanation such as instrumental effects, rotation of molecules, rapid stellar pulsations, and peculiar chemistry. “We find that the detected signals have exactly the shape of an ETI signal predicted in the previous publication and are therefore in agreement with this hypothesis,” the researchers wrote in the paper. “The fact that they are only found in a very small fraction of stars within a narrow spectral range centered near the spectral type of the Sun is also in agreement with the ETI hypothesis.” These superfast pulses will have to be generated by incredibly powerful lasers, like the one at the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory. Interestingly, in previous publications Borra has stated that this area of astronomy is the least explored, which raises the question on why these aliens would all decide to communicate in such a complicated and energy-consuming way. The researchers admit that although they believe aliens is the most likely explanation, this is yet to be confirmed. The Stephen Hawking-backed project Breakthrough Listen will conduct follow-up observations of these 234 stars, but the team at UC Berkeley, where the project's science program is based, invite people to be skeptical. “The one in 10,000 objects with unusual spectra seen by Borra and Trottier are certainly worthy of additional study. However, extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence. It is too early to unequivocally attribute these purported signals to the activities of extraterrestrial civilizations,” the Breakthrough Listen team said in a statement.

Lockheed Falcon Mach 6 hypersonic glide vehicle

Lockheed Announces It's Going to Build a Mach 6 Warplane Lockheed Martin CEO Marillyn Hewson announced on Tuesday that the aerospace company has made "several breakthroughs" on a hypersonic warplane that could reach Mach 6, known as the Hypersonic Test Vehicle 3X, or HTV-3X. The growing research in hypersonic flight is part of the DARPA Falcon Project, an effort to develop hypersonic vehicles capable of performing airstrikes anywhere in the world within one hour, a military goal known as Prompt Global Strike (PGS). In her statement at Lockheed Martin's annual media day, Hewson discussed multiple hypersonic projects. Lockheed Martin has a legacy of making fast aircraft, such as those in DARPA's Hypersonic Test Vehicle programs. We accomplished several breakthroughs on HTV-3X. And we're now producing a controllable, low-drag, aerodynamic configuration capable of stable operation from take-off, to sub-sonic, trans-sonic, super-sonic, and hypersonic to Mach 6. And most importantly, we're proving a hypersonic aircraft can be produced at an affordable price. We estimate it will cost less than $1 billion dollars to develop, build, and fly a demonstrator aircraft the size of an F-22. The other DARPA program, the HTV-2, has demonstrated robust and stable aerodynamically controlled flight at speeds greater than Mach 20. The HTV-2 and HTV-3X are proposed unmanned transonic aircraft that could perform long-distance airstrikes. The HTV-2 has been part of two launch tests, but the HTV-3X program was put on hold due to budget shortages in 2008. The HTV-2 is an experimental aircraft that is capable of achieving Mach 20 speeds, or about 13,000 miles per hour, after being launched on a rocket. Two HTV-2 launch tests were conducted, one in 2010 and one in 2011. After the second launch on a Minotaur IV rocket in 2011, the HTV-2 successfully hit speeds between Mach 17 and Mach 22 before crashing into the Pacific as a safety precaution. The HTV-3X, referred to as Blackswift before the project stalled out in 2008, differs from the HTV-2 in that it would take off and land conventionally rather than be launched by rocket. The HTV-3X would be the size of a conventional fighter jet. Lockheed is also working on a hypersonic spy plane that was announced in 2013. The SR-72 is designed to fly at Mach 6, twice as fast as Lockheed's famous SR-71 Blackbird which was retired from military service in 1998. The 2013 announcement suggested that flight tests for the SR-72 could happen as soon as 2018. It's difficult to say when we might see flight tests for the HTV-3X, or what the "several breakthroughs" are that have encouraged Lockheed to return to the project after an eight-year hiatus. But clearly the Pentagon is committed to developing transonic flight for the military, and Lockheed has responded.

NASA Under Fire Again for Editing Footage to 'Cover-Up' Alien Cube

A distinct square shape much larger than the Earth was once again spotted on two different cameras 25 hours apart earlier this week. UFO hunters spotted the mystery cube and uploaded it to the web leading many to speculate that it was an unidentified flying object that latched onto the orbit of the solar system. The first video footage was shot on NASA’s Solar and Heliospheric Observatory (SOHO) cameras EIT 195 and EIT 171. Alien enthusiast and founder of UFO Sightings Daily Scott C Waring said the pictures were absolute proof that the cube was more than a pixilation glitch and are actually indicative of a floating celestial body. ​"This is evidence that the cube is really there and is a large skid object bigger than the earth," claims Waring. "The cube is in the same location in both photos." Still others claim that the image of a black cube is actually a censor imposed by NASA to shield the presence of an orbiting UFO from the knowledge of the general public. In this undated artist's rendition released by the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) showing the Falcon Hypersonic Technology Vehicle 2 (HTV-2) Feeding into this controversy is the fact that the downloadable images from SOHO’s website now exclude the black cube with some accusing NASA of airbrushing the image to provide a clear background. This isn’t the first time this year that NASA has come under fire from UFO hunters accusing the agency of doctoring images to conceal the truth from the public eye. One month ago, NASA was forced to deny a cover up when they cut a live feed at the moment a strange object appeared near the International Space Station, but several discerning UFO hunters were able to capture a picture of the blurry diamond-shaped structure before the video feed broke.

Russia's Hypersonic 7680MPH Nuclear Glider Armed With ICBMs Almost Ready

After launching initial tests on Russia’s first futuristic glider last year as part of Russia’s Project 4202, the aircraft believed to be the Yu-74 is “ready for action” reports Britain’s Daily Star. The glider can travel at a speed of Mach 10 (7,680MPH or 12,3560kmh) and will reportedly be fit with RS-28 Sarmat intercontinental ballistic missiles although details about the glider’s specifications remain top secret. In April, US military officials confirmed the existence of Russia’s deadly hypersonic glider. Considered a first in a growing aviation arms race, both the US and China are now hurrying to develop comparable hypersonic gliders equipped with nuclear intercontinental ballistic missiles increasing the defense gap between the military superpowers and the rest of the world. Former U.S. National Security Agency contractor Edward Snowden. The report on the development of Russia’s hypersonic glider comes at a time when Moscow’s relations with the West approach a historic tipping point driven most recently by accusations that President Vladimir Putin is attempting to intervene in the US political election after Hillary Clinton’s campaign hurled a desperate allegation that the WikiLeaks file dump exposing her own bid, joined by the media and Democratic Party officials, to subvert the 2016 presidential election was all a plot of the Russians. The splurge of Russophobia appears to have spilled over into defense relations with feverish assaults on Moscow’s strategy in Syria of stabilizing the Assad regime at least as long as necessary to root out Daesh and other jihadist elements in addition to renewed struggle in Crimea after Ukrainian forces were thwarted in a terror plot, an incident that has brought Moscow and Kiev to the brink. M142 High Mobility Artillery Rocket System (HIMARS), a multiple rocket launcher There does appear to be a bit of opportunism in the reporting of Russia’s defense capabilities by Western media outlets with recent leaks claiming that NATO would be outgunned by the Moscow military machine if a conflict were to ensue in a transparent effort to lobby for increased defense appropriations to further subsidize the Western military-industrial complex. Although the latest report by Britain’s Daily Star may be in line with this vein of exaggerating the threat of Russia, Moscow’s program of hypersonic military capabilities has been an open secret and similar reports about the incredible capabilities of the experimental Yu-74 have been detailed by defense analytics webspite which determined that the aircraft’s outstanding maneuverability and high speeds would render NATO’s missile defense systems and the US THAAD shield useless.

Top 30 PS3 games

30. Puppeteer (buy it here)

puppeteer ps3
Platformers that aren't from Nintendo or indies are in short supply these days, which is why it was so nice to see Puppeteer come virtually out of nowhere. The player controls a boy named Kutaro, who has the misfortune of being turned into a puppet and uh, having his head cut off soon after. Kutaro spends the game finding new heads to use, and everything plays out as a wondrous puppet show, complete with curtains, stage and an audience. Though the platforming itself is solid, the real draw here is the art design, which is endlessly creative and a joy to look at for the duration of the game. It's also one of the only games for the system to make a real case for 3D, as the puppet show motif is perfectly suited for the limitations of those goofy movie theater sunglasses.

29. Killzone 2 (buy it here)

killzone 2
Nothing could have lived up to that infamous (and extremely fradulent) E3 trailer, but what ended up in the package of Killzone 2 was still worth celebrating. Remember, the original Killzone on PS2 was a soggy mess that was too ambitious for the hardware. But KZ2 had the benefit of being on arguably the most powerful system of the generation, which gave Guerilla Games the headroom for some stunning animation and impressive setpieces. Though the story itself wasn't super compelling, for the most part the campaign was a blast, and the multiplayer still holds a special place in the heart of many fans.

28. 50 Cent: Blood on the Sand (buy it here)

You would be correct in guessing that this is not a great game. Hell, 50 Cent: Blood on the Sand might not technically be a good game. At heart, it's a bog-standard third-person Gears of War-style shooter with your typical firefights, upgrades and setpieces. But it's important to note that this game is all about 50 Cent on a vendetta to retrieve the jewel-encrusted skull that is rightfully his. And equally important is the "curse button," which lets you hurl insults at people by clicking in the right stick. This extends your combo meter, along with the pleasure of hearing 50 Cent tell a thug he's "gonna kill your whole fucking generation!" Part of the joy of this game, which is best played in co-op with a friend, is making your way through the game and unlocking new curse button dialogue. And isn't that what video games are all about?

27. 3D Dot Game Heroes (buy it here)

3d dot game heroes
Playstation fans don't really have a Zelda-like series to call their own (outside of maybe Darksiders), and they most certainly didn't have the benefit of a legacy of 8-bit action RPGs. From Software recognized the potential of filling that niche, and what we got was 3D Dot Game Heroes. The Dark Souls developer basically made another Legend of Zelda, albeit with 3D pixels commonly known as "voxels." While the animation was just as stiff as an NES games, the 3D look and neat depth of field tricks gave it a look all its own. And you know, it probably helped that it played like a Zelda game. 

26. Civilization Revolution (buy it here)

civilization revolution
Some might call it "Civ for Babies," but Civilization Revolution is actually a pretty elegant solution for playing the series on a console. Everything is streamlined, from the movement to the building to character interaction. It doesn't feel dumbed down, rather carefully pruned to ensure the best parts of Civ games remained intact. Like any good entry in the franchise, it's easy to lose hours of sleep to that familiar mantra, "just one more turn." CivRev might not be as complex as its PC counterparts, but rest assured: Gandhi is still a dick.


25. Heavy Rain (buy it here)

heavy rain
Cinematic adventure games have come a ways since the days of "Press X to Jason," but that doesn't mean Heavy Rain doesn't deserve credit for pushing the subgenre forward. The mystery of the Origami Killer is legitimately intriguing, making Heavy Rain the equivalent of a video game page-turner. By today's standards the dialogue is a little hammy, but that doesn't mean it's not playable in 2015. In fact, it's probably a selling point

24. Shadows of the Damned (buy it here)

shadows of the damned
Though it sort of got lost when EA's marketing team sent it out to die with little fanfare, Shadows of the Damned is much more than its generic name implies. A team effort between former Capcom mastermind Shinji Mikami and No More Heroes lunatic Suda 51, SotD plays like Resident Evil 4 in a Tim Burton nightmare. Having a solid gameplay foundation makes it that much more enjoyable to ride along with Garcia Fucking Hotspur (yes, that's his real name) and his demon/gun sidekick, Johnson. It's goofy and more than a little immature, but at least it's not Resident Evil 6.

23. Infamous 2 (buy it here)

infamous 2
There really should be more open world superhero games, but the corporations that own Superman and Thor are more than content to keep their capes confined to crappy free-to-play mobile titles. Thankfully we've got Infamous and its sequel, a pair of great games that do a fine job of making you feel like an entirely different kind of thunder god. Choosing between the first and second game is really a matter of preference, but the improved depth of the city gives part 2. Plus it has an ending where Zeke finally dies.

22. BlazBlue Chrono Phantasma Extend (buy it here)

The title makes one thing clear: This is indeed a relatively obscure Japanese series that has seen plenty of iterations. But the franchise has stuck around so long because at its core, it's a great fighting game. With dazzling 2D graphics and an array of fantastical characters, it stands out among the Street Fighters and Mortal Kombats that dominate the current fighting game scene. Blazblue games have always been a little dense, with combo-heavy systems that are somewhat comparable to the Marvel Vs. Capcom games. Even so, it's still easy to hop in with friends and mess around.

21. LittleBigPlanet 2 (buy it here)

Of all Sony's new IP in the PS3 era, LittleBigPlanet might be the most innovative. Making and sharing your own levels just wasn't a thing on consoles before LBP, much less in the form of an adorable handcrafted world narrated by Stephen Fry. Years before Mario Maker, LBP gave fans access to thousands upon thousands of hours worth of user-created content. Series veterans weren't too happy with the third installment of the series, which featured some game-breaking bugs and the inability to carry over a substantial amount of DLC from the previous entry. For now, LBP2 seems to be where the community is, at least until LittleBigGalaxy.


20. Yakuza 4 (buy it here)

yakuza 4
Diehard Sega acolytes have been clamoring for another Shenmue sequel for years, but in that time another series has been chugging along that some believe is a fine substitute. Though admittedly more of a brawler, Yakuza 4 does feature a smattering of Shenmuian minigames like fishing and pachinko. The story and characters are a bit more robust than Shenmue too, with over six hours of cutscenes spread across its formidable length. Okay, so the Yakuza games aren't really that much like Shenmue, but they're still a unique little slice of Japanese gaming that we don't see too often in the West these days. You could probably start anywhere in the series (3 is on PS3 as well, and 5 came out at the end of 2015), but many fans agree that Yakuza 4 is probably the strongest entry on the system.

19. Tomb Raider (buy it here)

tomb raider 2013
The "cinematic gameplay" of the Uncharted series influenced scores of games, but that's not always a bad thing. The setpiece-driven nature of blockbuster-style video games can and has been used as a solid skeleton for multiple titles. In the case of Tomb Raider, the Nathan Drake-ish antics are used more as connective tissue between more open levels and environments. It's probably as close to Uncharted 4 as PlayStation fans will get until, well, Uncharted 4. 

18. God of War 3 (buy it here)

god of war 3
The God of War series has always hung its hat on spectacle, and this time around it's 35-gallon cowboy hat filled with blood and cow intestines. Storywise, it's important because it finally closes the loop on Kratos' path of destruction leading all the way up to his ultimate revenge on his betrayer, Zeus. But really, you're just here to see terrible things happen, in quick and gory succession, to everyone but you. It does kind of peak early with the Poseidon fight, but the rest of God of War III is still a damned good character action game. 

17.  Virtua Fighter 5 (buy it here)

virtua fighter 5
Street Fighter is more iconic and Tekken is more accessible, but it's hard to match Virtua Fighter's special brand of precise and satisfying gameplay that relies a little less on button mashing. In the fifth (and if we're being honest, probably last) entry in the series, the roster has grown to a point where pretty much any playstyle is catered to. If you don't feel like tracking down a physical copy, you can always grab the superior VF5: Final Showdown on the cheap through the PlayStation Network. Showdown has a more complete suite of features and is altogether better than vanilla VF5, but taking that into consideration for the ranking would be cheating, and we couldn't possibly do that.

16. Ratchet and Clank: A Crack in Time (buy it here)

ratchet and clank
Much like superhero games, the once-thriving market for family-friendly platformers has all but dried up outside of Nintendo. One of the few franchises to carry the torch over into the new generation is Ratchet and Clank, which saw several entries on PS3. The vibrant, colorful worlds of R+C always looked great, but here they look even better. Though Tools of Destruction and the downloadable Quest for Booty are by no means bad games, the consensus has landed on A Crack in Time as the best mix of the series wonderful level and weapon designs on the console. Play long enough and you might eventually forget that they're making a movie out of the franchise for some reason.


15. Call of Duty: Black Ops II (buy it here)

call of duty black ops 2
Advanced Warfare was fun and Call of Duty 4 was groundbreaking, but there can only be one zenith of the franchise. Though it had a couple bumps here and there, the upward trajectory of the series peaks with BLOPS II, which has equally memorable campaign and multiplayer suites. The story mode in particular experiments with branching paths and alternate endings, the first and so far only CoD to be so bold. The multiplayer managed to hit that crucial sweet spot between tight gameplay and satisfying progression. These games might blur together for some, but taken on its own, it's hard to deny that BLOPS II isn't a highlight of the generation.

14. Diablo III: Ultimate Evil Edition (buy it here)

diablo 3
For all intents and purposes, Diablo shouldn't work on a console. The series has been made for PC since day one, no question. And yet, with the Ultimate Evil Edition of Diablo III, Blizzard somehow managed to turn those addictive and endless clicks into addictive and endless button mashing. What's more, after the impeccable console tradition you still get to play Diablo III with the fantastic Reaper of Souls expansion, all from the comfort of your couch. Same-screen co-op is also a great addition for those playing on TVs, at least before blood is shed over who gets the best loot. 

13. MLB: The Show (buy it here)

mlb the show
Major League Baseball has kind of a funny history with games. For the longest time, no matter which developer had an exclusive contract, the console makers had a special exception. Meaning that folks like Nintendo can and have created their own official MLB games like the classic Ken Griffey Jr. series. Though the other two big-leaguers have squandered this opportunity as of late, Sony has been constantly putting out what many consider to be the best baseball series of all time. Granted, the MLB 2K series dropped off a couple years ago and made Sony's franchise the only game in town, but that doesn't mean The Show is worth any less to sports fans.

12. Vanquish (buy it here)

For a game that features a guy in a mech suit rocket boosting everywhere while shooting tons of robots, Vanquish went relatively underplayed. It happens all too often to PlatinumGames; not only are they the mad geniuses behind Bayonetta, but several key members of the staff worked on cult classics like Okami and Viewtiful Joe. That special brand of polished but idiosyncratic gaming is all over Vanquish, which has a special move in which you toss a lit cigarette over your shoulder to throw off heat-seeking robots. This is pure, uncut video games, something that's become less and less common in the age of Uncharted.

11. Sleeping Dogs (buy it here)

sleeping dogs game
As open-world games became more prevelant in the PS3/360 generation, they became cluttered with more and more Stuff. So many GTA wannabes thought that the best idea to outdo the big competish was to plant a bunch of flags down and create a ton of climbable towers everywhere. But Sleeping Dogs keeps it simple. It creates a place -- in this case, a beautiful rendition of Hong Kong -- and sets its own tone. This is a world where hand-to-hand combat is plentiful, and dropping a car's engine on someone's head is common. This is a world where you can jump out of your car and onto the back of another car with the push of a button. This is a world where you can walk into a nightclub and your character's head will start nodding ever so slightly with the music. It's like a lot of open-world games you've probably already played, but in a way, unlike any other.


10. South Park: The Stick of Truth (buy it here)

south park stick of truth
No one expected this game to be any good. Pretty much every South Park game up to the Stick of Truth had been, speaking in technical terms, complete dogshit. But Matt Stone and Trey Parker were smart to choose Obsidian, the developers behind Fallout: New Vegas, to see through their vision of a South Park game that didn't completely suck. But TSoT doesn't just not suck, it's in fact a tight Paper Mario-style RPG with a lot of creativity and very little filler. Best of all is the presentation, which is a shockingly accurate facsimile of the cartoon. This might be the only game where "it's like playing the TV show" isn't an exaggeration.

9. Dead Space 2 (buy it here)

dead space 2
If Dead Space 1 was like the movie Alien, then Dead Space 2 is basically Aliens. Though the sequel still has plenty of the wretched body horror of the original, DS2 has a bigger focus on action and variety in gameplay sequences. The zero gravity sequences in particular are a blast, almost the opposite of getting your eyeball stabbed with a giant needle. It's probably a matter of preference as to whether you like the first or second game better, but hopefully we can all agree to ignore Dead Space 3. 

8. Ni No Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch (buy it here)

ni no kuni
This is a Studio Ghibli video game. If you know what those words mean, you should probably play Ni No Kuni if you haven't already. For those unfamiliar with the movie studio, Ghibli is known for creating the most fantastical, wondrous and heartwarming animated films to ever come out of Japan. They collaborated with Level 5 to make Ni No Kuni, which plays a bit like your typical Dragon Quest or Final Fantasy with a few tweaks. If a beautiful JRPG with charming characters and a stellar soundtrack doesn't sound like your thing, NNK probably isn't for you. But you should at least try out Spirited Away.

7. Batman: Arkham Asylum (buy it here)

batman arkham asylum
Arkham City might have better graphics, more refined combat and a host of other upgrades, but there's something about Arkham Asylum that was never matched in sequels. It might have to do with the setting itself; the grounds of Arkham made for such a compelling but logical labyrinth. Every area you come across is meaningful, designed with the idea that you're actually going to see it, as opposed to briefly glide over it like you might in City. That sort of close-quarters Metroid-like progression is still mostly unique to Asylum, which makes it essential for fans of the series.

6. XCOM: Enemy Within (buy it here)

xcom enemy within
Nobody was sure that a new XCOM could work. Hell, the original XCOM team had a hard time coming up with decent sequels. But Firaxis not only pulled it off, but managed to make a turn-based strategy RPG resemble a horror game. The locales and encounters are only occasionally spooky, but the real terror here lies in the consequences of making a wrong move. Building up your squad and watching them grow over a dozen missions, only to have them killed (permanently) is nothing short of terrifying. Those who have played the game might not admit it, but squealing aloud when your leader is ambushed is not terribly uncommon. Only a game this great can be as stressful as buying a house.



5. Valkyria Chronicles (buy it here)

valkyria chronicles
Since its release on Steam, over half a million players have learned of the greatness that PS3 diehards have known for a long time. Set in an alternate version of the mid-20th century, Valkyria Chronicles loosely follows the World War battles between the totally-not-Allied nations and the definitely-not-Axis powers. Though it's another strategy RPG, it's unlike XCOM in that there aren't any rigid grids to follow, allowing for increased freedom in combat. All of this is tied together with some of the best graphics on the system; it's not cel shaded, but the faded framing and careful placement of cross-stitching give it a hand-drawn look. Play it on PS3 or play it on Steam -- just play it. 

4. Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots (buy it here)

Though MGSV came out years later, MGS4 is the real swan song for our hero Snake. It shows everywhere from the bombastic cutscenes to the labyrinthine plots to the longwinded lectures about war, love and nanomachines. Everything here is pure Metal Gear, distilled down to its most essential parts. Even if you're not into director Hideo Kojima's trademark storytelling style, the finely-tuned stealth gameplay reaffirms why the series has always been at the top of the genre. You probably know whether you want to play a Metal Gear game or not, but if you're new to this scene, well... bless you. And buckle up.

3. Uncharted 2 (buy it here)

uncharted 2
Uncharted 2 was so good that it's not that impressive in 2015. Since its release, so many games have cribbed from every facet of UC2 that going back is like replaying a dozen other games from a dozen other developers. You can't really blame anyone for ripping off the setpiece driven action or the snarky dialogue or the seamless gameplay-to-cutscene transitions. Uncharted 2 was the first of a new type of game, the blockbuster action title. While it's true that many have tried to replicate its success (including Naughty Dog themselves with Uncharted 3), none have managed to capture that magic of sliding down that collapsing building, or jumping between those trucks in the epic car chase. Even if you've played other games like it, UC2 is well worth playing, if only to pay your respects. 

2. The Last of Us (buy it here)

last of us
For those who played through The Last of Us, that image should make you cringe on the inside. Getting torn apart by a clicker (one of the game's brutal post-apocalyptic fungus zombies) only takes a couple seconds, but over the course of the game you spend hours dreading that moment. While the game is the right kind of stressful when it comes to combat (whether with zombies or humans), the story is what sets The Last of Us apart from the rest of the pack. The basic plot -- a man takes a girl across the country in the apocalypse -- is pretty simple, but it's the way that these characters interact, and how they change (and maybe don't change) throughout the course of the game that will stick with you. TLOU even makes you ponder the ethical and moral implications of your trademark Video Game Man murdering tons of people before hitting you with one of the biggest gut-punch endings in any game. It's also available on PS4, but the PS3 will emotionally cripple you just fine.

1. Demon's Souls (buy it here)

demons souls
If someone asks you what Demons' Souls is, you can say any number of things. It's an action RPG. It's a hardcore medieval survival game. It's a horror game with swords. It's a Japanese torture device designed to wring the determination and will out of anyone foolish enough to play it. All of those are viable answers. But most of all, Demons' Souls is a video game. When people first played it all that time ago, it rekindled something they hadn't felt since they were kids. Yes, it's on a new console in 3D, but it has that same kind of harsh but fair difficulty that is rarely seen in the handholdy movie-like games (like you know, Uncharted 2). Demon's Souls isn't for everyone; in fact, it's one of the least-accessible games on this list. But if you stick with it and play by the rules, it's as rewarding as they come. And that's what we play games for.

A programmer turned sci-fi author has predicted that robots could outnumber humans as early as 2040

A sci-fi author is suggesting that humanity's dominion over robots may dramatically shift in the next few decades as automatons begin to outnumber people.
Based on his calculations, Logan Streondj believes that it is only a matter of time before humans are outnumbered by robots.
He explains that, by comparing birth rates with robot production rates and then extrapolating forward, the number of people and robots 'born' per year will be the same in 2040.
It's all downhill from there as robots would overtake humans in population by the early 2050's and outnumber people 10 to 1 by around the year 2070.
While this may sound like a simple mathematical exercise, Streondj posits that a conflict between humans and robots will ultimately arise due to this population parity.
Provided they have the sufficient artificial intelligence to do so, which seem likely, future robots will eventually realize how vastly they outnumber humans and may decide to assert themselves over their creators.
And, thus, the robot apocalypse begins.
For more on the rise of robots, check out software developer Martin Ford's appearance on last night's C2C where he discussed how robots are poised to take a myriad of jobs from humans in the near future.

There will be as many robots as there are humans within the next 24 to 39 years, according to a blog post published yesterday by a writer who is penning a new science fiction novel.
Logan Streondj, a software programmer and author, wanted to figure out when the population of robots will reach that of humans for his book titled “A home for robots or-else artilect war.”
Streondj used a variety of sources to determine the date. First, he turned to statistics website World Counts, which states there are roughly 350 thousand humans born every day, the equivalent of 130 million a year. The growth rate is around 1%.
Then he turned to the International Federation of Robotics, which states there were about five million robots produced in 2014 (when combining service and industrial robots), with a growth rate of around 15%.
“Using a compound interest calculator and presuming rates stay relatively constant, [it’s possible to] figure out that in around 25 years (2040) parity will be reached — the number of robots and humans being produced per year will be the same,” wrote Streondj on the Joyful Lifestyle Cooperative blog.
“However, while homo-sapiens live on average 70 years, according to World Fact Book, robots have a life expectancy closer to 10 years, so would need to produce about seven times more robots per year in order to have the same number as humans which will be reached in the early 2050s. If, however, there is no assistance from humans fighting for the entitlements of robots, and the robots are forced to revolt by themselves, likely they would do so when outnumbering humans 10 to 1, which would (assuming trends continue) be in 55 years, or around 2070.”
A robot can be defined as a machine capable of carrying out a complex series of actions automatically, especially one programmable by a computer, according to Oxford Dictionairies.
Streondj said he needed to come up with a realistic timeline for when a conflict could occur between humans and robots.
“Intuitively it would seem to be around the time when there are as many or more robots than homo-sapiens on the planet, at which point there may be enough sufficiently intelligent robots to demand a space for themselves,” he said. “The most likely time-frame for an artilect war style conflict would be between 2040 and 2055.”
An artificial intellect (or “artilect”) is a computer intelligence superior to that of humans in one or more spheres of knowledge, together with an implicit will to use the intelligence, according to AI researcher Dr Hugo de Garis.
Renowned scientists, such as Stephen Hawking and Oxford University’s Nick Bostrom, have warned that machines could outsmart humans within the next hundred years. Hawking told the BBC in 2014 that artificial intelligence could spell the end for humanity, while Bostrom agrees that the future of the human race is likely to be shaped by machines.
Billionaires like PayPal founder Elon Musk and Microsoft cofounder Bill Gates have also expressed their concerns over the uncontrolled development of AI. However, many other scientists in the field, such Microsoft Research chief Eric Horvitz, say AI fears have been greatly overblown.

People and Planes Are Vanishing in the Alaska Triangle

Cryptozoologist Ken Gerhard told C2C about Alaska's unsettling number of missing persons cases and strange instances of plane disappearances in a region known as the Alaska Triangle.
In discussing his new History Channel program Missing in Alaska, Gerhard marveled that an astounding 53,000 people have gone missing in the state since 1988.
The troubling average of 500 to a few thousand people disappearing each year is made all the more remarkable by the fact that Alaska only has a population of around 600,000.
"That's about four in every thousand people that go missing without a trace," Gerhard observed.
Although there are a number of possible natural explanations for why some people may disappear in Alaska, such as the state's vast wilderness and dangerous animals, he suggested that there may also be supernatural elements at work behind the disappearances.
"Alaska does boast a number of fabulous legends that relate to all manner of really strange and somewhat menacing creatures," Gerhard said, noting that the state also has a rich history of UFO events as well.
Connecting all of this together may be what is called the 'Alaska Triangle.'
Gerhard described it as a "large swath of land that ranges all the way from the very northern part of the state ... all the way down to Juneau. It is an actual triangle."
"It is within this triangle area that most of these disappearances have occurred," he said, "very similar to the Bermuda Triangle in that respect."
Beyond merely missing people, Gerhard revealed, the Alaska Triangle appears to have claimed a number of aircraft as well.
To that end, he shared the story of a case from 1950 when "a military craft with 44 people aboard went missing. Completely vanished."
A subsequent search for the plane last 39 days, he said, and involved hundreds of aircraft and personnel.
"To this day," he said, "they've still not found a trace of this pretty sizable aircraft."
Gerhard acknowledged that one theory behind these strange disappearances could be that there are energy vortexes which either release geomagnetic energy or serve as "wormholes to other dimensions."
The phenomenon of people disappearing in Alaska is so widespread that a tourist actually went missing while Gerhard was in Juneau filming the series.
"It's an amazing proposition," he said, "that so many people up there vanish without a trace and are never found."

97% of non-coding sequences in the human DNA is Alien

According to mainstream scientists: Alien code found in our DNA. Extraterrestrial beings created our species.
Researchers who worked for 13 years in the Human Genome Project indicate that they came across an amazing scientific discovery: They believe that the so-called 97% of non-coding sequences in the human DNA is nothing less than the genetic code of extraterrestrial life forms. Originally referred to as “Junk DNA” its functioned remained a mystery for researchers. Now researchers believe that our DNA is extraterrestrial in origin.
After extensive analysis with the help of other researchers in diverse fields such as mathematics, chemistry and programming, Maxim A. Makukov of the Fesenkov Astrophysical Institute have ventured out and asked if there is a possibility that, what we call “junk DNA” is actually some sort of extraterrestrial code, created by an “Alien” programmer.
According to researchers from Kazakhstan, “Our hypothesis is that a more advanced extraterrestrial civilization was engaged in creating new life and planting it on various planets. Earth is just one of them.”
The researchers indicate that “What we see in our DNA is a program consisting of two versions, a giant structured code and a simple or basic code.”
The team of researchers believe for a fact that the first part of our DNA code was not written on Earth and according to them it is verifiable. Secondly and most importantly, genes alone are not enough to explain the evolution/abrupt evolution process and there must be something more in ‘the game’.
According to Makukov “Sooner or later,” “we have to accept the fact that all life on Earth carries the genetic code of our extraterrestrial cousins and that evolution is not what we think it is.”
The implications of these scientific findings reinforce claims by other individuals and observers that claim to have had contact with aliens that look like humans. Human-like aliens could have provided some of the genetic material necessary for human evolution.
Quote from News.Discovery: This interpretation leads them to a farfetched conclusion: that the genetic code, “appears that it was invented outside the solar system already several billions years ago.” This statement endorses the idea of panspermia, the hypothesis that Earth was seeded with interstellar life. It’s certainly a novel and bold approach to galaxy conquest if we imagine this was a deliberate Johnny Appleseed endeavor by super-beings
Researchers in Kazakhstan believe that the human DNA was encoded with an alien signal for an ancient extraterrestrial civilization, and they refer to it as “Biological SETI”. The mathematical code in the human DNA can not be explained by evolution. Basically, we are living and breathing holders of some sort of alien message that can be used,in a much more efficient way then using Radio-signals, to search for Extraterrestrial life.
Once the code had been set, it would remain unchanged in cosmological time-scales, in fact, researchers believe that our DNA is the most durable “construction” known, and that is why it represents an exceptionally reliable and intelligent storage for an alien signature, according to an article in the journal Icaurs.
Writing in the journal Icarus, they assert: “Once fixed, the code might stay unchanged over cosmological timescales; in fact, it is the most durable construct known. Therefore it represents an exceptionally reliable storage for an intelligent signature. Once the genome is appropriately rewritten the new code with a signature will stay frozen in the cell and its progeny, which might then be delivered through space and time.”
Scientists believe that the human DNA is arranged in such a precise way that it reveals a “set of arithmetic patterns and ideographic symbolic language”. These studies have led scientists to believe that we were literally invented “outside of Earth” several billions of years ago.
These ideas or beliefs are anything but accepted in the scientific community. Yet these studies have proven what some researchers have talked about for decades, that evolution could not have happened on its own, and that there is something extraterrestrial to our entire species. Is our entire history wrong?
One mystery that would remain as THE GREAT QUESTION is, if extraterrestrial beings did in fact create the human race and life on planet Earth, then “who” or “what” created these extraterrestrial beings?

19 Pieces Of Non-Human DNA Found In Human Genome

Eight percent of your DNA is alien, in that it’s made up of non-human, viral fragments. In fact, viral fragments are often hiding within the genome of anything on Earth that has a jaw and a spinal cord, which is a remarkable reminder of how they’ve shaped evolution for hundreds of millions of years.
A new study, published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, reveals that we are even less “human” than previously thought: Nineteen new pieces of ancient viral DNA have been uncovered within our own genome. Perhaps most strikingly, the full genetic “recipe” for an entire virus was found within 2 percent of the people examined.
Retroviruses of all kinds have their genetic code in the form of RNA, often seen as the primitive precursor to DNA. These viruses infect their host cells by inserting a DNA-based replica of their own RNA into the genome of their host, which can include humans. The human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) is an example of a contemporary retrovirus that infects humans in this way.
Ancient retroviruses have been infecting our ancestors for hundreds of thousands of years. Fragments of this virus-manufactured DNA remained within our ancestors’ genomes, which has been copied and passed down from generation to generation. These fragments are known as human endogenous retroviruses, or HERVs.
Previous estimates put our own DNA as being at least eight percent HERV, and the authors of this study were searching for signs of new HERVs within humans. They looked carefully at the genome of 2,500 people from all around the world, and compared their genomes to a “reference” type, a digitized genetic sequence assembled by scientists that acts as a representative sample of our own species’ genome.

The newly discovered provirus could potentially behave like a fully working retrovirus. nobeastsofierce/Shutterstock
The researchers found 19 new HERVs, adding to the 17 previously identified by other studies. One of these new HERVs (found within 50 of the study subjects) was not a mere fragment of a viral genome, but the entire genome itself. This makes it a “provirus,” and is only the second known to exist within humans. Although it has yet to be proven, this provirus could potentially replicate and behave like a working virus, unlike the fragmented HERVs.
“This one looks like it is capable of making infectious virus, which would be very exciting if true, as it would allow us to study a viral epidemic that took place long ago,” said the study’s coordinating author John Coffin, a virologist at the Tufts University School of Medicine, in a statement.
Some HERVs have been adopted by our own bodies to serve useful purposes, including one that aids pregnancy. This particular HERV helps in constructing a protective cell layer around a fetus in order to stop toxins from the mother’s blood infiltrating it.
As they are often an integral part of our biology, hunting down these HERVs is essential for medical research. This study has added another bunch to the pack – as well as revealing how “alien” we truly are.

Dark Pyramid found in Alaska

"Farewell Airport could have been a forward staging area to bring in equipment and supplies by helicopters to the 'Square' that you mentioned." - - Airline Pilot and Retired USAF Lt. Col.
© Earthfiles/Frank Flavin
September 26, 2012, aerial of anomalous “green square” (red circle) with surrounding creeks that includes Highpower Creek and Mount McKinley to the southeast.
"The pilot told my dad the Alaska site was 'every bit as hush hush as the Manhattan Project.' ...The pilot also told him that it was not a nuclear device; it was not made by man; nobody is supposed to know this place even exists. ...This thing is some kind of power generator and it's thousands of years old, it's made out of stone like a pyramid. They don't know where it came from, who made it or how it works. But it can generate enough power to power the whole North Slope, all of Alaska, and probably the whole country of Canada!" - Bruce L. Pearson, New Jersey
In my ongoing efforts to understand if the alleged underground and ancient "dark pyramid" in Alaska could be true, Earthfiles hired Alaskan aerial photographer Frank Flavin to fly in a helicopter on September 26, 2012, over the "green square" latitude/longitude discovered in Google Earth by a retired Navy Captain and described in earlier Earthfiles reports that include:
The alleged underground pyramid structure west of Mount McKinley has provoked a lot of email since my original Earthfiles and Coast to Coast radio interview with Doug Mutschler, retired U. S. Army Counterintelligence Warrant Officer, with information about an underground pyramid that was posted on July 26, 2012.
See: Updated Parts 1 - 3: 072712 Earthfiles.

On July 27, 2012, I received more email information about a "dark pyramid" underground in Alaska west of Mount McKinley from the 46-year-old adopted son of a retired Western Electric engineer, who allegedly worked between 1959, the year Alaska became a state, and 1961 on a powerful electrical system emanating from a very large underground pyramid of unknown origin in Alaska.
See: Updated Real X-File Parts 1 - 5: 082312 Earthfiles.
That latitude/longitude I wanted to investigate about fifty miles southwest of Mount McKinley is: Google Earth Lat/Long: 63°17'51.40"N 152°31'24.49"W. The elevation there is 1,150 feet. The helicopter image below was taken from 3,000 feet altitude, but does not show a "green square." The Site is more like a ragged-edged circular area about the size of a football field in which the black spruce trees do not grow thickly as the spruce do around the Site. The marked Paths might be more related to animal traffic than historic, cleaned up terraforming, but there are more questions in the rest of this Earthfiles report. The nearest flowing water is Fish River, and about five miles away towards Mount McKinley is the unusually named Highpower Creek. An Alaskan geologist found in his 1998 edition of Alaska Place Names Dictionary by Scarp Exploration, Inc., this listing for the Highpower Creek name reported by USGS in 1958:
Highpower Creek: stream, head is in Mount McKinley National Park, flows NW, then SW 58 miles to Swift Fork Kuskokwim River, 55 miles NE of Medfra, Kuskokwim Lowland; 63* 25' N, 153* 07' W; BGN 1964; (map 89). Variant names: Black Creek, Hipower Creek, Slow Fork, Slow Fork Kuskokwim River, Slow Fork Swift Fork Kuskokwim River. Local name reported in 1958 by USGS.

Aerial photograph of the “green square” Site at bottom of image is: Google Earth Lat/Long: 63°17'51.40"N 152°31'24.49"W
This helicopter image from 3000 feet in the air does not show a square, but more a ragged-edged circular area about the size of a football field in which the black spruce do not grow thickly as the spruce do around the Site. The marked Paths might be more related to animal traffic than historic, cleaned up terraforming. The nearest flowing water is Fish River, and about five miles southeast toward Mount McKinley is the unusually named Highpower Creek.
I asked the retired Navy Captain why the darker green "square" he discovered in Google Earth wasn't seen from 3,000 feet from the helicopter on September 26, 2012? The Navy Captain emailed on September 27, 2012:
Linda -

Seasonal Variation of Flora - we don't know when the Google Earth Image was taken with respect to month or year. From the image in Google earth, the reason the square stands out is because there is color differentiation between the four sides of the square and the surrounding flora. The area in general has two shades of green. One darker green which outlines the square and several other abstract shapes in the same general vicinity, and a lighter greenish, yellowish, tan color that seems to define the areas adjacent to the numerous creeks/streams in the surrounding area. This color differentiation serves to outline both the abstract dark green shapes as well as the square anomaly. However, since we have no idea of the nature of the flora in the Google Earth map, we don't know how it may vary in color with the season in which sunlight duration and intensity, temperature and water flow in the creeks changes. Therefore it may very well be that the color differentiation that we see is not there when the flora all turns to a dry brown say as winter approaches. The elevation of the area around the square anomaly was very flat. The slopes of the sides were very small % of the total length, with changes in the elevation on the order of 10 to 15 ft over 1500 foot square.
It's also worth noting that while we tried to study the anomalous "square" Site in Google Earth, we were frustrated by out-of-focus blurring below a certain altitude, while other surrounding areas are clearly in focus down to tree sizes. The same focus problem occurs at Highpower Creek - no low altitude images are in focus. Is the selective blurring deliberate?

Further, I learned that in 1998, the Pacific Air Forces (PACAF) initiated "Operation Clean Sweep," in which abandoned White Alice and DEW Line stations in Alaska were remediated and the land restored to its previous state. Could the surface land above the alleged dark pyramid have been cleaned up, too?
